Jenny Tomasin Dead At 75

Actress Jenny Tomasin has died at age 75. It was announced on January 19 that she had died during the previous week.

Tomasin's first major role came in the 1970s when she joined the cast of UPSTAIRS, DOWNSTAIRS as Ruby, the kitchen maid to the Bellamy family. She appeared in the series from 1972, until it came to an end in 1975.

Plans were made for a spin off series featuring Ruby, and fellow UPSTAIRS, DOWNSTAIRS characters Hudson and Mrs Bridges, however, the series was never made, due to the death of Angela Baddeley (Mrs. Bridges).

In 1985, Tomasin guest starred in the DOCTOR WHO serial "Revelation of the Daleks."

She also played two roles in the soap opera EMMERDALE. Between the years of 1981 and 1982 she played Naomi Tolly, daughter of Enoch Tolly, who was killed in a tractor accident. Her second role was as Noreen Bell, a cantankerous villager who was killed off in July 2006. This would be her final role.
